“This place is awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2008

Amarelindo is an amazing gem! One of the owners, Gilles, is a former French chemical engineer who recently set up this place in the heart of historic Salvador. It's an oasis of comfort, style, and exquisite taste. A big traveller himself, Gilles has designed this place to anticipate a traveller's every need. Beautifully designed, the place is stock full of features you'd normally only get in a huge resort type place. The breakfast is to die for; we were bummed we only had a day there and couldn't stay longer to try other meals there. plus, he's got the cutest dog ever, Prunella!

We stayed for 6 nights in December and it was perfect in every way. Gilles and Didier could not have been kinder or more helpful, the hotel is peaceful, ideally located and beautifully designed. We also ate there every night and it was delicious. We cannot recommend this hotel more highly, it is very special.STAY HERE!!!

The room was excellent, with beautiful furnishings, a hardwood floor. and great air conditioning. The staff were very helpful, especially Junior. Not all of them spoke English but we were always able to get by with smatterings of Portuguese. The restaurant was also excellent (but puzzlingly empty) -- the best food we had in our entire Brazil vacation. One minor problem was that the shower was not designed very well and the water would often get out onto the bathroom floor.

Not much new to add to all the good reviews other than to say I agree with them 100%. Really beautiful room (great bedding!)and balcony , lovely public areas, fabulous pool with view, very friendly staff. Perfect location for walking around the pelourinho. Our cab had a tough time finding it on the pedestrian street so make sure they know where it is before the meter is on.

Wonderful, peaceful, oasis in the heart of Pelourinho. Giles & Didier & their excellent team are charming & friendly hosts. Lovely spacious rooms, comfortable & elegant - great attention to detail. Restaurant also excellent - mellow peaceful atmosphere and some of the most interesting and tasty food we experienced in Brazil. Great combination of complete peace & quiet within the hotel (excellent double glazing!) & immediate access to the fascinating, vibrant, often cacophonus street life from the doorstep. Excellent value. Could not recommend more highly.

  • Liked — Elegant & comfortable.
  • Disliked — Nothing negative to say
